5 Book Dive Presents: The Summer Reading Splash!
feat. Keynote Speakers
Adam Gidwitz & David Bowles
at AISD Performing Arts Center
As part of an initiative to foster literacy and stop the summer slide through a focus on summer reading, BookPeople officially partnered with AISD two years ago to amplify the district's Five Book Dive, a citywide reading challenge promoted all summer long through curated reading lists and program bookmarks. Last year we celebrated this partnership with the inaugural 5 Book Dive Summer Reading Splash, a festival that brought readers together for book signings, interactive sessions, and an opening keynote with Newbery Medal winner Kate DiCamillo! This year, we're excited to make an even BIGGER splash with our second 5 Book Dive!
We aim to bring together kids from all over the city, offering a dynamic and diverse program that puts the fun in summer reading! The festival is geared toward grades 3-6 but ALL are welcome to join.
The 5 Book Dive Summer Reading Splash is FREE and open to the public! Keep an eye out for the full author lineup, activities, and more info in the next couple of month
